2017 members and new members are encouraged to attend the SCA Annual Meeting, Tuesday, January 16, 2018, at 7:00pm, in the Stoneleigh Elementary School Cafeteria. (January 17 & 25 will serve as snow dates.)
Please attend to thank the 2017 Board, review and approve the proposed 2018 budget, and to elect the 2018 Board.
The bylaws require a 50 member minimum and there is a provision to vote by proxy as outlined below.
Members eligible to vote are all those 18+ from a household that has paid their 2017 Dues (which can also still be paid before the meeting begins).
The PROXY allows a member of a household that is in attendance to also cast vote(s) for additional member(s) of their household for whom they hold a valid proxy.
a present member can cast a vote for a SINGLE person household with that person’s valid Proxy.
AND, the Proxy must be witnessed by someone other than the proxy holder. The way our bylaws are written, 2+ adult households CANNOT simply vote via Proxy brought by a neighbor. This intent seems to be requiring each member household to actually attend the meeting – with the only exception made for SINGLE person households.
Please share the Proxy and how it works with your significant other and neighbor(s) where appropriate.
